MANILA - Typhoon Onyok intensified further Monday night as it continued to make its way out of the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR), the state weather bureau said.

The typhoon is expected to leave PAR on Tuesday as it continues to move north at 35 kilometers per hour.

As of 10 p.m., PAGASA said Hanna was last seen 515 kilometers north of Basco, Batanes, packing maximum sustained winds of 140 km per hour and gusts of up to 170 kph.

All tropical cyclone wind signals have been lifted. However, PAGASA still warned of occasional gusty conditions over Batanes.

The typhoon's rainbands are also expected to bring occasional light to moderate rains over Batanes.

Sea travel, especially for small seacraft, remains risky in the northern and eastern seaboards of northern Luzon due to potentially rough sea conditions.
